The X Factor 2011 slammed by Tulisa's bandmate Fazer!

Tulisa Contostavlos 2011

New X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has found her N-Dubz bandmates blasting the show once more - although this time it isn't Dappy! Rapper Fazer slammed the hit reality series, accusing the show's winners of not doing any work to achieve their huge - sometimes global - success.

He admitted he wasn't too impressed with Tulisa taking up the job of being an X Factor judge, hitting out at the programme for making stars who don't do much work.

Fazer said: “My problem with X Factor is that you come in as a nobody and then the next day you sell over a million records and you haven’t necessarily done any of the work to go with it. It’s weird. We worked 12 years to get to where we are.


“Heartbreaks, broken promises, ups and down – tears and smiles. You name it, it has happened.

“It has made us the people we are and any credibility that comes with it.”

But Fazer - real name Richard Rawson - did admit that the show gave people a chance, and said that N-Dubz would've probably auditioned if they hadn't made it yet.

He explained: “We might have tried that way instead. It gives people the chance to get on stage in front of a live audience and important industry people and get people to hear their sound.

“Also, there wouldn’t be people like JLS and there wouldn’t be no Leona either.”

Good to see Fazer has a bit more sense than bandmate Dappy, although if rumours of a relationship between him and Tulisa are to be believed, perhaps he just doesn't want to annoy his girlfriend...

The X Factor continues this weekend.
